Georges Bizet: Symphony No. 1 in C

Georges Bizet: Symphony No. 1 in C

Georges Bizet composed his First Symphony at the age of seventeen, and although the work enjoys regular performances today, the composer didn’t do much in his lifetime to promote the work. The composer wrote the piece off as a youthful indiscretion, and it wasn’t premiered until it was rediscovered in the 1930s – 80 years after its completion.
